what SE tried to do was to release a cheaper phone, not an innovative one, to target costumers who dont need or can live without some features of W800i. W700 is a much cheaper fone so I guess that justifies it. It's a marketing strategy.

this is the best walk man phone ever made in history and i think it will be for next 2 or 3 years but i think there is a problem with the joystick it breaks

ya i know most of them dislike the SE W700i but can they think the other side....most of the users would like to buy the model W800i from SE but it's too expensive..It is..So SE just fulfill their users requirement which produce the 2nd W800i which now called W700i with a better and affordable cost.

Don't worry SE, I will support this phone(W700i)and I'm thinking to purchase this phone by next month. So don't try to banned it.Wait for me!!!!!! I'm coming!!!!!

I think it is a good phone, though it would be better with autofocus. Many camera phones don't have autofocus though, so if the camera function is really important then buy a different phone. For me the mp3 function is more important, as well as the colour. 256 mb may not be enough for some, but you can always buy a memory stick with more memory. Orange is not my colour, and neither is black (who made the rule that platinum gold can't be a ''manly'' colour?) so this phone is better for me, and i don't think its so easy to change the w800i casing to this one because its just the front and back that come off. Anyway, I think its a better phone than many out there, but it would have been better to make the w800i in different colours instead.

This is a pretty lame update to the W lineup for users who already own a higher end W series phone(800, 810, 900 and 950). However for first-time W series buyers, this W700 is not bad as it is cheaper than other higher end ones but offers almost the same functionalities(missing autofocus and half the memory) as W800.

What's the big deal with the W700? You change colors, put a different Memory Stick and call it a new phone??
...That's the oldest trick in the book.

I love Sony Ericsson, but this is just dire. Do we really need another Walkman phone? Honestly? There's no sign of improvement, just lazy cash-ins. You'd be just as well picking up a k750 for cheap off an internet auction site, you get the same product for far less!

Boy are people not smart. Is anybody really buy a W800 and a W700 and a W900 and a W950??????????? Don't think so. When it come to the User interface SE Rules. Notice how just about ever phone now uses Joystick( Or something similar.), with icon based menus. SE has had that User interface since T68i (Thats like since 2002). And even with the same interface what's wrong wih that???????? If i had a w800 and wanted to upgrade to the w900 i would want that same interface. Simple if u don't like it go buy nokia, or razr or samsung. But when ou realize urphone can't play music for 30 hours don't cry, when you realise that your camera isn't that good don't cry. Anyone who hasever owned a SE was always inpressed same as me wen i had a t68i, now i am looking forward to the W800. Even without 512mb card n autofocus the w700 will be superior to any 2mp nokia.

SE why are you becoming a NOKIA? the reason i changed from NOKIA to SE is because of the way you really know how to create a HANDPHONE and not some cartoon phones like NOKIA, seems like SE too jumped into the cartoon phone bandwagon sigh,

Some people simply dont understand the Sony ericsson's point of view. They want to make all their costumers happy. Some people like W800 because of its features, but dont want to spend such a lot of money on a mobile. So, SE produce mobiles almost identic each other with different prices, so, people who dont need a good camera (not important if has autofocus or not) will find a good mobile for them with W700. That´s why they called it W700, because it is inferior than W800.

i wounder why ericsson providers use the same techniques ever.i was fond of ericsson mobiles but now i m fedup of all these the proper reason is the same mobiles but a bit change.
Almost my all friends sold their ericsson mobiles because they want change in their mobiles.
i m talking about applications whom we can install on other mobiles except ericsson.
why ericsson providers don`t allow its software to reshape as concern with peoples mind.
i just sold my mobile because i want some security in my mobile, and i wished my most things sercet to others.

I would say SonyEricsson has ran out of ideas..
they think by simply adjusting the color, adding a bit of flavour
on it will blind people's eyes..

at first i thought they've put some EDGE features on it (at least)
but i was wrong.. no changes at all.. shame.. shame..
